[image]Cyclone Nargis: Natural Hazards - NASA -- NASA Image Of The Day
On May 1, 2008, Typhoon Nargis hovered over the Bay of Bengal, having become a very severe cyclonic storm. A report issued by the U.S. Navy https://metocph.nmci.navy.mil/jtwc.php Joint Typhoon Warning Center at 15:00 UTC (approximately 9:00 p.m. local time) stated that the storm had intensified significantly over the previous six hours and was expected to come ashore in Burma (Myanmar) in the evening of May 2...

[image]Burn Scar Near Fort Carson, Colorado: Image of the Day - NASA -- NASA Image Of The Day
A fast-moving brushfire raced across the Colorado landscape near Fort Carson in mid-April. The blaze forced evacuations in the area and took more than a week -- which included a beneficial snow storm -- to contain. The fire scorched more than 9,000 acres according to news reports, and a pilot lost his life while helping to fight the fire. This image of the area burned by the fire was captured by the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer asterweb.jpl.nasa.gov/ (ASTER) on ...

[image]Fires on Borneo: Natural Hazards - NASA -- NASA Image Of The Day
Thick smoke buried the island of Borneo on October 12, 2006. This image from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer modis.gsfc.nasa.gov (MODIS) on NASA's terra.nasa.gov Terra satellite shows a cloud of smoke pooled over the heart of the island. Along the southern part of the island, scores of active fires (locations that MODIS detected marked in red) billowed gray-brown smoke. As the smoke spread north and mingled with clouds (white), it became a diffuse, gray haze...

[image]Dust Storm over East Asia: Image of the Day - NASA -- NASA Image Of The Day
March often brings an increase in dust storms to East Asia, and 2008 proved no exception. In early March 2008, the characteristic ''yellow dust'' from the Gobi Desert blew eastward over the Beijing region, the Yellow Sea, and North and South Korea. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer modis.gsfc.nasa.gov (MODIS) on NASA's terra.nasa.gov Terra satellite acquired the top image on March 1, 2008, and the bottom image the next day...
